5-4-10: Matt Porterfield’s “Putty Hill”
The Baltimore-based filmmaker Matt Porterfield made waves in 2006 with his first feature-length film Hamilton. In the New Yorker, Richard Brody named it one of the best films of the decade. Porterfield’s follow-up, Putty Hill, has played at festivals in Berlin and Buenos Aires and Atlanta and Austin; this weekend it has two showings at the Charles Theatre in Baltimore as part of the Maryland Film Festival. Porterfield joins Tom in the studio to talk about Putty Hill.
